LAURENS, S. C, July 27, 1897.
Tho Cnmpaign liko John Brown's
spirit goes marching on.' It is a splon
dld bchool for clocutionury oulturo?-a
fresh audience, oagor for political
education, squaring the great speak
ers in the face each appointed day.?
The weeks' work opened in Wlnnsboro,
thence to that cultured and innocent
childlike community, Columbia, the
site of your capitol. Tho mooting was
very cheerful and pleasant, honoyod
words characteristic of tho utter
ances. But thoro was nothing now.
Tho great men seem to have exhausted
thoir argunicntive and inventive re
sources. Gov. Ellerbo who has been
criticised by some of the speakers, was
invited to bo proscnt and dofond him
self. But he failed to respond. He
was right. Mr. Duncan appeared for
tho lirst time and spoke generally
without regard to any particular line
of policy. He has not appeared since.
Mayfleld attacks McLaurin's tariff re
cord and hits the Dispensary and jabs
Ellerbo and his administration. Irby
strikes right and left hitting Ellcrbe
between the peepers, a right jab at
McLaurin's tariff views, plays a prank
or so upon Evans, jollies and laughs at
the gang. Evans has a good speech
about old times, tho tarilT of ".VI, and
so forth. All have boen good and
faithful Reformers, McLaurin fights
tho whole train, with an occasional
left upper-cut, and then delivers his
speech in defence of his tarilT votes at
Washington. Columbia was their great
day?it is presumed that each did bis
clean best?and the ''great dailies"
spread themselves, and their pieces
were printed at large on Wednesday
hist. They must bo hero on the 7th
and wo will hear from them. Tho crops
will be by then clean and laid by. Got
a good sharp appetite for thoir pa
triotic deliverances-r-preparcd to give
each and every man a good-natured,
good tempered, and squaro hearing.
It had the appearance of a forlorn
hono when Senator Tillman trans
ferred the struggle for his Dispensary
baby from tho State to Washington.
Judge Simonton is not a Gibraltor. in ]
fact but one little man, and the power,
tho machinery, and the money of tho
whole people of South Carolina has
boen brought to bear against this one
little man. As a last resort and hope
Senator Tillman with six representa
tives in the House at his back brought
into play bis talents and energies to
influonce the Congross to hold up his
tired and faltering hands. We must
commend the zeal and skill of Senator
Tillman, as wo always have. The
Senator handled his pitchfork deftly
and got a Bill through the Senate
branch of Congress without, a bitch
intended to perpetuate the Dispensary
system in South Carolina. Tho argu
ment used was in tho Calhoun role of
State Rights?that South Carolina
should be allowed to manage her own
internal affairs. Hut, but, but, wo
who are Democrats are taught to be
lieve that the Federal Government
must bo made to hands off severely
and it was paternalism of the worst
kind, a contradiction anf Inconsistency
of the most flagrant sort, to appeal to
the Federal Government to make a
law to regulate and control the inter
nal affairs of the States. The Demo
crats, oven Hepublicans,demand of the
Federal Fower an to where tho people
of the States shall trade and trafflck
-hands off. So when Senator
Tillman called upon Speaker Reed,
tho Chairman of the committee on
Rules, with?"help me, Cassias, or I
Hink''?tho Zar drawled,' and stood
upon tho Democratic doctrine of not
helping a political machlno in South
Carolina, and our Senator's pitchfork
lay at his feet, tho keen point of the
rapier putting it harmless by. So there
Is no help from Congress which ad
journs in ton days or sooner to assem
ble in Dccombor; and if the Dispen
sary can stand on its own legs, until
the year of graco 1808, it can live out
its appointed davs without foreign
support. But it will die the death and
ought to die and die quick. It is the
most corrupting monopoly and agoncy
taai over existed in a State. It is tho
most flagrant agoncy for political
honchmon ever existing in a State or
conceived. That our people have not
soon its debasing workings is simply
that they have shut their eyos. Our
purpose was to commend Senator Till?
mat. for the skill he has shown in car
rying the Dispensary law to Washing
ton, and to show how /.ar Reed, was
Jack, tho giant killer, with his nine
mile boots, his cloak of darkness and
his sword of sharpness. And so we
trust it will ever be with a socallod
Democrat, appealing to Republican
Tho constant nagging at tho Gover
nor about tho Dispensary is ugly. It
is worso than ugly?it Is tiresome. It
is old straw. Lot it bo an issue
whon Governor Kllerbo offers again
for public office. It should not be an
issue in tho Senatorial campaign?as
elsewhere said Congress should lot it
severely alono?no Carolinian should
appeal to Congress. Let Govornor El?
lorbe alono and havo him to glvo us a
businoss administration, if possible?
If it is in him. Ho is to bo pitied that
ho inherited from former administra
tions such a puzzlo as the Disponsary.
But stop nagging at him.

This in the law of the South in a cer I

Thoro is a vory ridiculous debate go

fever broke out and of a number of
students sick livo died. This was no
groat matter among !tt)0 boys. The
cause is usually local and uo man is
wise enough to locato it. It happens
every day and the wisest is unable to
bud the locality of tho pest. A similar
visitation may not affect the locality in
a century. Tillman and Dr. Tabor
should shut up.

Mr. George Spoor, tho influential
banker of LaGrunge, Georgia, re
marks in one of her correspondence
appropos of Miss Aun Pamela Cun
ningham?A chapter of tho D. A.
R. and also a society of tho C. A.
R. have been named for Dolly
t Madison because she saved tho
j Declaration of Independence from
j the dames when tho British in
I varied Washington, and yet none
i has been named for Miss Ann
Pamela Cunningham who savod
the homo and grave of George
Washington from speculators and j
decay by years of labor and devo
tion and who really was tho first
person to arouse the peoplo to
their duty, as regards tho preser
vation of everything associated
with the life and use of that great
and good man. She adds: "Just
think if Miss Cunningham had
been a New England woman what
honor would have been shown
"I havo recently met a great
many people from the Now Eng
land section and can personally
testify as to their enthusiasm of
Miss Cunningham and her work."
Mrs. Speor's suggestion was
taken r.nd the La Grange Society
of the C. A. R. named thoir organ
ization after the distinguished
daughter of South Carolina.
Tho La Grange Roportor of July
Oth inst. has the following:
'?The children of tho American
Revolution celebrated tho Fourth
of July at the homo of Miss Noll
Gallaway Saturday afternoon.?
First came on the program the
salute to tho flag, a beautiful pres

Spoor, with the plodgo of allegi

"Tho name of tho society pre
sented by tho committoo was that
of Ann Pamela Cunningham, tho
founder of tho . ount Vernon As
sociation, an honor well bestowed,
as it was through tho untiring ef
forts of this woman, tho liomo of
Georgo Washington was prsservod
from decay and ruin and that it
now stands a monument to the
patriotism of American women."
South Carolina has left it to a
score of other Btates to name coun
tries in their respective limits af
ter her most distinguished son,
John C. Calhoun, certainly tho
most profound political thinker
and philosophical statesman of tho

will leave It to chapter societies
